MTV News caught up with Gwyneth Paltrow at the red carpet premiere of her new film “Two Lovers” and asked the talented “Iron Man” actress if she’s felt the same void when it comes to “Iron Man 2” news.
“They haven’t even given me a script yet,” Paltrow told MTV News. “They don’t tell me anything. I could be, like, a costume assistant in it. I know nothing.”
While it’s not surprising that Paltrow hasn’t been brought into the mix at such an early stage, there’s still no shortage of questions surrounding the next “Iron Man” film — namely, who’s in it and what parts are they playing?
As far as new additions to the cast, we know Sam Rockwell is playing Justin Hammer, and Don Cheadle is replacing Terrence Howard as James “Rhodey” Rhodes. Ever since Robert Downey Jr. said Mickey Rourke wasn’t playing Crimson Dynamo, that aspect of casting has been fairly unknown. And last we heard from Samuel L. Jackson, he didn’t seem to certain he’d return as Nick Fury. We’re assuming Paltrow will be back as Pepper Potts, but the on-and-off casting of potential love interest Emily Blunt as The Black Widow has us wondering what dynamic Paltrow and Downey’s characters will have in the eagerly anticipated sequel.
“I have no idea what it is,” said Paltrow of the relationship Potts will have with Tony Stark in the film. “Jon Favreau said it would be good, so I believe him.”
Me? I’m still waiting to hear who they’ll cast as The Unicorn. Now that is the Iron Man villain I want to see brought to the big screen.
What “Iron Man 2” news are you waiting to hear? What aspects of the sequel keep you up at night, die-hard fans?
